The small town of Isola delle Femmine arises
beyond the Capo Gallo in the direction of west.
It is closed to Punta del Passaggio that delimits
the Carini's gulf and it stretches itself for about
a kilometer on the sea.
The name, probably comes from the arabic word
"fim" that means inlet, but Plinio the younger
from Como (62 B.C.) annotates, in a letter he
wrote to Traiano, his journey next to: "parva
et pulcherrima insula mulieribus" leaving in
writing the legend that beautiful women lived in
the little island located in front of the town,
these girls offered thenselves for a moon-lasting,
to a knight who was deserving of the "Fronda di
Palma" (our gold medal for the bravery).
